Tom Sokol Portrait
  • I highly recommend Tom Sokol and his team.

    I made the change to FIDA over a year ago because they took a personal interest in our business and personal insurance, and supplied us with a package that covered our insurance needs. Their personal relationships and continued engagement throughout the year make us feel more like friends than clients.

About Tom

I am Agency Principal at First Independent Agency (All Lines of Commercial Insurance) in Clinton Twp, Michigan, where I focus on respect and leveraging human capital—meaning I love to motivate, mentor, and lead talented professionals. As a native of metropolitan Detroit, I believe in accountability, empowerment, and loyalty. I overcome complex business challenges using my experience-based judgement, strong work ethic, and irreproachable integrity.

Prior to my insurance career, I worked for GE Healthcare where I was responsible for $900 million profit and loss—including sales, service, installation, service contract sales, and consulting services for a diagnostic imaging business. I strive to create a strong and positive culture and to lead by example.

I received a Bachelor of Science in business management from Wayne State University, attending on a full academic scholarship. I went on to receive an MBA from Walsh College and graduated summa cum laude.
